Jordan Theisen of Kenai and Ruby Lindquist of Moose Pass both racked up top-10 finishes Friday at the Frontier Preview Meet in Billings, Montana, competing for Div. II Black Hills (South Dakota) State University.

Theisen, a 2015 Kenai Central graduate, finished sixth out of a field of 69 in the men’s five-mile race, running a time of 27 minutes, 5.5 seconds, to pick up his sixth career collegiate cross-country top-10. Fellow Alaskan Keith Osowski of Kodiak finished directly ahead of Theisen in fifth with a time of 26:56.60. Theisen was the third-highest finisher for Black Hills State.
